Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) - ADAMH Board of Franklin County

Crisis Intervention Team (CIT)

Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) programs across the country help direct persons with mental illness into treatment instead of inappropriate incarceration. The forty-hour training provides practical techniques for de-escalating crises. Officers learn to integrate their police training with some different approaches to a person they believe to have a mental disorder. Role playing is utilized to make the experience as close to reality as possible.

Below are the PowerPoints presented in the October 2020 training.
